Title

Bayard Taylor's Midnight Sun in Lapland, Norway, Europe

Creator

Damitz, Ernst

Description

In this piece, Damitz depicts a fanciful view of Norway inspired by writer Bayard Taylor’s travel stories. Damitz was also influenced by Romanticism and Norwegian folk art. While this painting is in conversation with contemporary American art, like the Hudson River school, Damitz' invented proportions for objects like the ship and church show that he is ultimately denying the American ideology of visuality as facticity.
